Ive had to pull all my lemon balm out of my herb planters because it's taking over. Teach me to buy a herb because it smells nice.

Anyway I have an absolute ton of it and no idea what to use it for.... any ideas on what it goes with?

And you can use it for pimms instead of mint

I love the Pimms idea bit alas I'm pregnant.

Nutribullet it up with water, lemon and lime pulp and ice for a nice sharp thirst quencher?

Cake. Blitz up a load of leaves with sugar in the food processor, and use it to make a cake. No vanilla.
Then you can do the sugar thing again for a drizzle.

Or just put bits in salads, cous cous, on pasta..
